Roger Malbert's beautifully designed book is a welcome addition to the relatively sparse English-language literature on contemporary drawing... Malbert's selection of artists, known and unknown, establishes his thesis that there is a global reinvestment in the human figure as a source of political, psychological and, above all, satirical commentary. For once, in an art world that worships the casual gestural sketch, these are predominantly complex, skilful and ideas-based drawings, weaving witty, disturbing or powerful fantasies about aesthetics as well as abjection. They celebrate exaggerated graphic elaboration, and also colourful and open-ended anarchic invention.--Deanna Petherbridge "The Art Newspaper "
Drawing People rewards through its eclectic mix of artists using drawing as their base, and may inspire an expanding attitude towards the human figure from artistic readers.--Derek Brazell "Association of Illustrators "
The work varies as one would expect from hyper realism to nearly non-representational. There is pure line, chiaroscuro, and color. Reproduction of the art is generous, both in printing quality and size. Each artist's name, birth date, birthplace, and current location is provided. Some works speak eloquently of the artist's ethnicity and others reflect this age of instant communication--the blurring of borders.--Jonathan Rickard "New York Journal of Books "
a crucial guide to today's best artists who draw--Alyssa Greenberg "The Art Blog "
An art student on any level will obsess over this thoughtful analysis of the most innovative drawings of the human form being created today.--Lalé Shafaghi "Juxtapoz "

Packed with drawings in pencil, ink, watercolor, charcoal and crayon, this publication dives into the world of drawing, looking not only at the medium itself but also into the artists individual styles, approach and narratives found within the works...
